Experts Say Putting Your Phone Away Can Keep You Safe

Driving distracted is one of the worst things you can do on the road. No one knows this more than we here at First Choice Honda, which is why we want to help you stay distraction-free as much as we can. To accomplish this, below we have listed one of our all-time favorite tips for staying mindful on the road.

It can't be stated enough: Cell phones are for emergencies only on the road! As tempting as it may be to respond to a text or return a missed call while driving, it's crucial to resist. Any sort of multitasking is a recipe for disaster while driving, but cell phones and smart devices are in a league of their own when it comes to impairing a driver's ability to function well. Some studies suggest that someone on their cell phone is more than twice as likely to get into a deadly crash. As such, never consider using your phone on the road. If you absolutely must, wait for a red light, and put it down again as soon as it turns green again. Better yet, pull over at a safe place and make the call. You won't regret it!
